We’ve been working together with the Sheong Shi Tannery in Kolkata since 2010. Patrick and Veronica, the owners of the tannery, are very passionate about working with us to improve, expand and promote the use of our eco-friendly leathers.

Our second tannery is located in Tuscany, Italy. We started working with them in 2016, when we were in need of a higher quantity of high-quality hides. Luckily, we found the Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium, a consortium of tanneries with a shared passion for vegetable-tanned leather, high production standards and respect for the environment..

Use of vegetable tannins
Founded in 1994 by a small group of Tuscan tanners, today there are more than 20 associated tanneries. In the Tuscan leather district vegetable-tanned leather is still produced following the traditional methods: turning raw hides into durable leather takes time and patience, and the skillful combination of technology and experience.
One of the associated tanneries is Conceria Nuova Grenoble. This family-run tannery, with its state-of-the-art articles, was born in 1977 and it is synonymous for respect for tradition and safeguard of the environment.
Just as all the other tanneries of the Consortium, Concercia Nuova Grenoble uses purification and waste management systems that recover, reuse and recycle production substances.
Thanks to the qualities of the natural oils used in the tanning process, the leathers always maintain specific characteristics of beauty, brilliance, softness, and longevity.
